what we do

WE APPRECIATE ALL OUR MODEL A FORD HOBBY FRIENDS 

The Autumn Trails Model A Club members meet once a month and go on periodic group tours.  They exchange ideas, information and parts for admirers of the 1928-1931 Model "A" Ford car, and to aid them in their efforts to restore and preserve the car in its original likeness.  The Club has many regional members who conduct year-round tours to historic sites, attend museum and entertainment venues, and travel the scenic roads of eastern Texas.  The yearly Autumn Trails celebration is held in Winnsboro each weekend in October, with the Autumn Trails Antique Car Rally held the fourth weekend; now held for over 57 years.

AUTUMN TRAILS A'S ~ MODEL A FORD CLUB

aUTUMN tRAILS a'S hISTORY

Originally founded in 1963, the Autumn Trails Model A Ford Club focuses on the historic preservation, restoration and era-associated memorabilia of the Model A Ford, produced from 1928-31. 

The purpose of the club is to maintain an enjoyable hobby around the Model A Ford, increase awareness and interest in the hobby, as well as promoting historic preservation and tourism transportation.


​In 1975, a movie was made about the Antique Car weekend of Autumn Trails in Winnsboro, TX. Victor Duncan rented out movie equipment and held classes to teach students how to use the equipment, from shooting the film, cutting, editing and producing. He made many films about the Model A Ford cars, like working on brakes, carburetors, cooling system. This is one of them films.
